slomotion : This is a fab idea! Roll call. I need to be able to live vicariously through these ladies. I lurked on the other CFBC thread about what people did over the weekend because they didn’t have children, and all I thought about is the life I’m leaving. I’ve been sans children for 39 years. That’s a long ass time, and I need to able to peek in on how the other side lives.
This way, it doesn’t feel as exclusionary and smug as this thread, which I’m guessing is part of the problem.

My best friend is CFBC and I have 3 kids. We have been friends since we were 15 and we will turn 41 this year. She and I enjoy each other’s company and can validate each others life choices. I have never once suggested she is selfish or missing out for not having children, and she has never once told me how she enjoys her life more than I do because of all her extra money and last minute travel. We both are so much more multi-dimensional than just “parent” or “CFBC”, so we don’t run out of things to talk about. There are a lot of bratty kids out there, and there are bratty adults too. It’s sad that people on the Bee can’t be civil.

groomsister35 : I agree. Just as there are forums geared to other lifestyles/choices. We should have equal rights to have a dedicated forum where we can discuss issues unique to us….. without being judged/harassed with accusations of acting superior/smug/needing to “validate” our choices! Since these are public forums, agree that ignoring these posters is the only way to go, otherwise every thread will get derailed!
